Cardiol J 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Abbott Health Economics & Reimbursement.

There is a great need for innovative technologies that will improve the health and quality of life (QoL) of Polish patients with cardiac problems. It is important that the safety and effectiveness of the technology are confirmed by scientific evidence on which guidelines and clinical recommendations are based. Scientific evidence for medical devices is also increasingly important for decision-making in finance approval from public funds. Read More

Long-term clinical results of biodegradable vascular scaffold ABSORB BVS™ using the PSP-technique in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

Cardiol J 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1st Department of Cardiology, University of Medical Sciences,Poznan, Poland, Dluga 1/2, 61-848 Poznan, Poland.

Background: The PSP (predilatation, sizing, post-dilatation)-technique was developed to improve the prognosis of patients after bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) implantation. In acute coronary syndrome (ACS) the use of BVS is particularly demanding and carries some potential risk regarding aggressive lesion preparation, proper vessel sizing due to spasm and thrombus inside the artery. The aim herein, was to determine the long-term results of BVS stenting in ACS patients depending on the scaffold implantation technique. Read More

The use of modern telemedicine technologies in an innovative optimal cardiac rehabilitation program for patients after myocardial revascularization: Concept and design of RESTORE, a randomized clinical trial.

Cardiol J 2018 Dec 21. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development American Heart of Poland, Poland; The Jerzy Kukuczka Academy of Physical Education, Katowice, Poland.

Despite proven efficacy of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in reducing the all-cause mortality in patients after myocardial revascularization, the penetration of CR, due to patient-related factors and referral rates remains limited. To improve the outcomes, home-based tele-rehabilitation (TR) has been proposed recently. In theory TR enhances the effects of standard CR procedures due to implementation of an intelligent monitoring system designed to ensure optimal training through on-demand transmission of vital signs, aimed at motivating the patients through daily schedule reminders, setting daily goals and creating a platform for mutual feedback.

Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw Lindleya str 4, 02-005 Warsaw, Poland.

Background: Tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) is an established index of right ventricular (RV) systolic function and a significant predictor in normotensive patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). Recently, Doppler tissue imaging-derived tricuspid annular systolic velocity (TV S'), a modern parameter of RV function was reported to be useful in the diagnosis and prognosis of a broad spectrum of heart diseases. Therefore, herein, is an analysis of the prognostic value of both parameters in normotensive PE patients. Read More

B: ACKGROUND: : The side branch (SB) compromise after main vessel (MV) stenting remains a significant problem in coronary bifurcation treatment. Currently the two major hypotheses for the mechanism of SB compromise are carina shift from MV into the SB and plaque shift into the ostium of side vessel. It is proposed herein, SB ostial deformation leading to reshaping of the ostium from circle to ellipse is a third possible mechanism. Read More

Right atrial pathology in arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia.

Cardiol J 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital.

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common atrial arrhythmia in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVD). Considering the histologic changes known in the right ventricular (RV) in ARVD, the aim of the present study was to examine right atrial (RA) pathology in patients with ARVD.

Methods: Histology of RA and RV was assessed from autopsy material in 3 patients with ARVD without persistent atrial arrhythmia. Read More

Long term outcomes in diabetic patients treated with atherectomy for peripheral artery disease.

Cardiol J 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development American Heart of Poland, Poland.

Background: The prevalence of diabetes has increased significantly in well-developed countries during the last decade and it continues to grow. Diabetes increases the risk of restenosis in patients treated percutaneously for peripheral artery disease. The present study sought to compare outcomes of atherectomy treatment in diabetic (DM) vs. Read More

The effect of chest compression frequency on the quality of resuscitation by lifeguards. A prospective randomized crossover multicenter simulation trial.

Cardiol J 2018 Oct 19. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Lazarski University, 43 Swieradowska Str., 02-662 Warsaw, Poland; Hounter Holmes McGuire Center for Simulation and Healthcare, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, USA, Richmond, United States.

Background: The ability to perform high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation is one of the basic skills for lifeguards. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of chest compression frequency on the quality of the parameters of chest compressions performed by lifeguards.

Methods: This prospective observational, randomized, crossover simulation study was performed with 40 lifeguards working in Warsaw, Wroclaw, and Poznan, Poland. Read More

The Polish adaptation of the CAMbridge Pulmonary Hypertension Outcome Review (CAMPHOR).

Cardiol J 2018 Oct 19. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

1st Department of Cardiology, University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland, Poland.

Background: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) results in severely impaired quality of life (QoL) in people with this condition. The CAMbridge Pulmonary Hypertension Outcome Review (CAMPHOR) is the only questionnaire providing a disease-specific measurement of symptoms, functioning and QoL in PH patients. It has already been adapted for use in several countries. Read More
